Rajkumar Hirani’s desire to work with superstar Amitabh Bachchan is finally about to come true as he is reportedly directing a commercial starring Big B and Kangana Ranaut.
It is being said that the 28-year-old actress, who visited the PK maker’s office recently to discuss Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, discussed details of the commercial that is set to be shot in Mumbai.
Although this will be the first time that Kangana and Amitabh would be sharing screen space together, the Piku actor has previously praised Ranaut many times for her acting skills.
Hirani revealed his admiration for Bachchan saying, “I am a big fan of him (Bachchan). As a child, I used to speak like him, get clothes stitched like him, listen to his father’s poems that he recites. I remember when he came to my place, he did recite his father’s poems and I have recorded that and kept it. It is a precious possession. It is a joy to hear it.”
Expressing his desire to cast Amitabh in his next film as well, Hirani, earlier this month had said, “I would love to direct him (Bachchan). I have a script ready. I am working on it and hopefully, by the year end, I will be done. Then I will approach him.”
However, no official confirmation has yet been released about the commercial involving the two stars.
